Efficacy of Metacognitive Training for Depression as Add-on Intervention for Patients with Depression in Acute Intensive Psychiatric Inpatient Care: A Randomized Controlled Trial
CONCLUSIONS: Although D-MCT as an add-on was not superior in complete case analyses, results suggest greater benefit for patients with MDD and no comorbidity. D-MCT proved feasible in acute-psychiatric inpatient-care and was highly accepted by patients. Future studies should investigate the role of modified (meta)cognition on long-term treatment outcome, including dropout and relapse rates.PMID:35274407 | DOI:10.1002/cpp.2733 (Source: Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy)
